What is Safe Routes to School?

The mission of the Takoma Safe Routes to School program is to make it safe for students to walk and bike to school. The program serves students and families at Takoma Park, Piney Branch, Rolling Terrace, and East Silver Spring Elementary Schools, and Takoma Park Middle School.  A Safe Routes to School grant from the State of Maryland funds the program.

To learn more about any of the following programs, contact the Safe Routes to School Coordinator at lucyn@takomaparkmd.gov.

Cheers to 10 Years!  The Safe Routes to School Takoma Park 5K Challenge promotes pedestrian safety by challenging the students, parents and staff at participating schools, and area residents to train and compete in the annual race held the first Sunday in May. Events include a 5K run or walk, a one-mile fun run and a quarter mile youth race. Proceeds from the 5K Challenge fund pedestrian safety and health initiatives through the local Parent Teacher Associations.  Visit TKPK5K.com.
